An audience of more than 30 students and journalism professionals joined SPJ/ONA DePaul and an expert panel for a discussion on war reporting last Wednesday evening.
Panelists fielded questions from SPJ/ONA DePaul’s executive board as well as questions from the audience. Chris Bury, DePaul’s senior journalist in residence and award-winning broadcast journalist, moderated the event.
- Alex Quade, award-winning war reporter and documentary filmmaker
- Jackie Spinner, journalism professor at Columbia College Chicago and correspondent for the Columbia Journalism Review’s United States Project
- Cornell Wilson, attorney, community advocate and United States Marine Corps veteran
- Alex Rodriguez, Chicago Tribune Nation/World and Global Connections Editor
Alexandra Halaby, senior contributing editor and spokesperson at the International Middle East Media Center, was prepared to join the panel via Skype, but could not due to technical difficulties.
Audience members live-tweeted the conversation using the Twitter hashtag #SPJWDP.
